Cover Reveal: For Whom the Bread Rolls

I got my first glimpse of the cover for the second Pancake House Mystery, For Whom the Bread Rolls, about a week ago and I absolutely loved it right away. It’s so cute and cozy and perfect for the story, which is, after all, a cozy mystery. 🙂

I’m super excited that I can now share the cover with the world, so I won’t delay any longer!

Here it is:

I’m so grateful to the Alibi design team for creating such a great cover, and I can’t wait until the book is out in the world too. For Whom the Bread Rolls will be released in March 2017. In the meantime, if you haven’t yet checked out the first book in the series, The Crêpes of Wrath, you can find it here.

Thanks for coming by to see my new cover! 🙂

Release Day: The Crêpes of Wrath

Cover - Crepes

The release day for The Crêpes of Wrath is finally here! I’m beyond excited that this book is now out in the world, kicking off my new cozy mystery series!

The first book in the Pancake House Mystery series, The Crêpes of Wrath introduces my newest heroine, Marley McKinney, who finds herself in a sticky situation: stacking pancakes, pouring coffee, and investigating murder.

Here’s more about the book:

When Marley McKinney’s aging cousin, Jimmy, is hospitalized with pneumonia, she agrees to help run his pancake house while he recovers. With its rustic interior and syrupy scent, the Flip Side Pancake House is just as she pictured it—and the surly chef is a wizard with crêpes. Marley expects to spend a leisurely week or two in Wildwood Cove, the quaint, coastal community where she used to spend her summers, but then Cousin Jimmy is found murdered, sprawled on the rocks beneath a nearby cliff.
 
After she stumbles across evidence of stolen goods in Jimmy’s workshop, Marley is determined to find out what’s really going on in the not-so-quiet town of Wildwood Cove. With help from her childhood crush and her adopted cat, Flapjack, Marley sinks her teeth into the investigation. But if she’s not careful, she’s going to get burned by a killer who’s only interested in serving up trouble.

The Crêpes of Wrath is available from online retailers such as Amazon.com, Amazon.ca, Chapters, Barnes and Noble, Google Play, and iTunes.

Release Day for Deadly Overtures!

A composing competition rises to a murderous crescendo in author Sarah Fox’s third Music Lover’s Mystery.

Deadly OverturesDeadly Overtures is now available! This is the third book in the Music Lover’s Mystery series and I’m incredibly excited that readers can now join Midori (professional violinist and amateur sleuth) on her latest adventure. I had so much fun writing this book (and the others in the series) and I hope people will enjoy reading it. Deadly Overtures is currently available in e-book form and the trade paperback will be released on July 12, 2016. You can find Deadly Overtures and the other two books in the series (Dead Ringer and Death in A Major) on Amazon, Chapters, Barnes & Noble, and other online retailer sites.

Here’s what Deadly Overtures is about:

Four talented classical music composers have been named finalists in a composing competition hosted by the Point Grey Philharmonic. With money and egos on the line, it doesn’t surprise violinist Midori Bishop that the competition has brought out jealousy and bitter rivalries among the entrants. What does surprise her is finding one of the finalists murdered in the theater. With a cloud of suspicion hanging over the symphony’s esteemed concertmaster, Midori orchestrates her own investigation, uncovering a medley of dark secrets and motives for murder. But can she bring the truth to light before the killer silences her forever?

Cover Reveal: The Crêpes of Wrath

A while back I announced that I’ll have a new cozy mystery series (published by Penguin Random House) beginning in September 2016 – the Pancake House Mysteries. The Crêpes of Wrath is the first book in the series and will be released as an e-book on September 20, 2016. Today I’m excited to share the cover for The Crêpes of Wrath for the first time.

Here it is:

Cover - Crepes

I love how the designer incorporated a glimpse of the ocean and really captured the cozy feel of the story and the setting – the seaside town of Wildwood Cove.

I’m also excited to share the cover copy for the book, so you can find out what it’s about:

In the debut of a delightful cozy mystery series, Sarah Fox introduces a charming new heroine who finds herself in a sticky situation: stacking pancakes, pouring coffee, and investigating murder.

When Marley McKinney’s aging cousin, Jimmy, is hospitalized with pneumonia, she agrees to help run his pancake house while he recovers. With its rustic interior and syrupy scent, the Flip Side Pancake House is just as she pictured it—and the surly chef is a wizard with crêpes. Marley expects to spend a leisurely week or two in Wildwood Cove, the quaint, coastal community where she used to spend her summers, but then Cousin Jimmy is found murdered, sprawled on the rocks beneath a nearby cliff.

 After she stumbles across evidence of stolen goods in Jimmy’s workshop, Marley is determined to find out what’s really going on in the not-so-quiet town of Wildwood Cove. With help from her childhood crush and her adopted cat, Flapjack, Marley sinks her teeth into the investigation. But if she’s not careful, she’s going to get burned by a killer who’s only interested in serving up trouble.

I can’t wait for this book to get out in the world and for readers to spend time with the main character, Marley, in Wildwood Cove! 😀

The Crêpes of Wrath is currently available for pre-order from online retailers like Amazon.

Cover Reveal: Deadly Overtures

Deadly Overtures (A Music Lover’s Mystery #3) will be released in June 2016, first as an e-book, with paperback to follow. As with the first two books in the series, Deadly Overtures follows professional violinist Midori Bishop in her adventures as an amateur sleuth. I’ll share more about the book below, but first here’s the cover:

Deadly Overtures

I love it so much and I’m so grateful to the art department at HarperCollins for designing such fabulous covers for each book in the series.

Here’s what Deadly Overtures is about:

Four talented classical music composers have been named finalists in a composing competition hosted by the Point Grey Philharmonic. With money and egos on the line, it doesn’t surprise violinist Midori Bishop that the competition has brought out jealousy and bitter rivalries among the entrants. What does surprise her is finding one of the finalists murdered in the theater. With a cloud of suspicion hanging over the symphony’s esteemed concertmaster, Midori orchestrates her own investigation, uncovering a medley of dark secrets and motives for murder. But can she can bring the truth to light before the killer silences her forever?

Again, Deadly Overtures is due out in June 2016. The ebook is currently available for pre-order on Amazon, Amazon Canada, Chapters, Barnes & Noble, and from other online book retailers. You can find out more about the first two books in the series (Dead Ringer and Death in A Major) on my author website.

I’ve had so much fun writing this mystery series and I hope readers will enjoy it!

Dead Ringer on sale!

Dead RingerAmazon currently has the ebook of Dead Ringer on sale! Dead Ringer is the first book in the Music Lover’s Mystery series, featuring Midori Bishop, professional violinist and amateur sleuth.

The ebook is currently available for $0.85 on Amazon.com and $0.99 on Amazon.ca.

Here’s what the book is about:

Midori Bishop’s life is hitting all the right notes. She has her dream job playing violin in the Point Grey Philharmonic Orchestra, and is embarking on a new relationship with the symphony’s hot maestro. But when Midori finds a cellist strangled to death during a rehearsal, the maestro soon becomes the number-one suspect and Midori his only supporter.

Midori sets out to prove the maestro’s innocence, but soon discovers that he and many others have secrets they would rather keep hidden. For someone who was only a ringer—a temporary member of the orchestra—the dead cellist had certainly made a lot of enemies. And as the investigation takes Midori closer to the truth, the killer gears up for a grand finale—with Midori as the intended victim.

Radio Interview

Death in A MajorLast night I did my first radio interview! I talked to host Jason Henderson about my Music Lover’s Mysteries on the latest episode of Castle of Horrors. I had a great time chatting with Jason about Dead Ringer and Death in A Major, and I’m so glad he invited me on the show.

For anyone interested, you can listen to the interview online or download it from the show’s website here. Currently my interview is at the top of the list since it was the most recent episode, but in the future you can find it by the date (01/25/2016) and title (Interview: Sarah Fox “Death in A Major”)

The ebook of Death in A Major: A Music Lover’s Mystery #2 was released in early January and the paperback will be available on February 23, 2016.

Release Day: Death in A Major

Death in A MajorToday Death in A Major gets released into the world!!! 😀 😀 😀

This is the second book in my Music Lover’s Mystery series, which follows the sleuthing adventures of professional violinist Midori Bishop. Available today as an e-book, Death in A Major will also be released in trade paperback on February 23, 2016.

For those who haven’t yet read the official blurb, here it is:

When Archibald Major, local big wig and nasty tyrant, drops dead at a post-concert reception, violinist Midori Bishop soon suspects foul play. Although Midori has no intention of getting involved in another murder investigation, that all changes when Jordan—her violin student and the victim’s grandson—seeks her help convincing the police that the real killer is his uncle, a low-level criminal. As Midori digs into the victim’s life, she discovers that he was a man who created discord at every turn, even within his own family, and there is no shortage of potential suspects. When someone close to Midori unexpectedly confesses to the crime, Midori must race to discover the identity of the true killer before an innocent person goes to jail for a crime they didn’t commit…and before Midori herself becomes a victim in the killer’s deadly encore.

I hope readers will enjoy this book as much as I enjoyed writing it!

Here’s the Amazon link.

The first book in the series is called Dead Ringer and I’m currently working on the third book which will be released in June 2016.

Dead RingerDeath in A Major

Me and Midori

Death in A MajorWith only one week (!) remaining until the release of Death in A Major, I thought I’d answer a couple of questions I’ve been asked about the Music Lover’s Mysteries:

How are you and your protagonist (Midori Bishop) similar?

Aside from the fact that we both like tea sandwiches, Midori and I both love a good mystery, and unsolved ones drive us crazy. That’s the main thing we share. In addition to that, I used to play the violin (although not professionally) and I grew up in Vancouver, Midori’s home town.

How are you different?

In more ways than I can count. My mysteries are, of course, works of fiction and Midori isn’t meant to be me in any way. That said, I think the main difference is that I’m not a snoop. I might get curious about things, but I’m not so likely to stick my nose into other people’s business. Midori, on the other hand, is a snoop. A well-meaning one, but a snoop nonetheless. 🙂

Thanks for reading! I hope you’ll enjoy Death in A Major, the second book in the Music Lover’s Mystery series.

 

 

Book News!

I’m happy to announce that I have another book deal! My fabulous agent, Jessica Faust, has sold my cozy mystery Crêpes of Wrath to Penguin Random House (Alibi) in a three book deal!

The first book in the Pancake House Mystery series, Crêpes of Wrath follows Marley McKinney as she works to solve a murder while managing the Flip Side pancake house in the seaside town of Wildwood Cove, Washington.

I had so much fun writing this book and I’m excited to write the second and third installments of the series over the next year. The seaside setting was inspired by the place where I vacationed each summer while growing up, and I’ve loved incorporating the setting into the story.

The pancake house mysteries will be available as ebooks and Crêpes of Wrath will be released in September 2016.

I’m so happy about this news, and I hope readers will enjoy this new series! 😀
